ANTON CHIGURH scored by over three lengths in heavy going at Carlisle earlier this month. He's up 7lb for that but Tom Dascombe's charge can follow-up with conditions similar underfoot. Sam Sharp has a shout on his earlier narrow margin defeat in testing ground and arrives on the back of a win at Leicester but Vito Volterra is now 10lb higher than his latest win. Neutrafa is another who will handle the surface but has shot up the weights and Prince Of Sorrento makes more appeal off his current mark as he was beaten only a nose in heavy ground at Newcastle in June.
